More Information

For many years, a village has been plagued by a terrifying tradition.  Each villager knows that their fate is determined by a book, a council, and a single word.  While they're all given eternal life in the village, they're in constant fear of not knowing when their time is up.  When someone's word is spoken at a ceremony, their existence is painfully ended, and the rest of the village must carry on without them.  It's just tradition.

Two villagers quietly question the validity of the ceremonies and risk their lives to try to find an answer. 

How can they make it stop? 
How can they save their friends? 
What is the oriign of this deadly curse?

Underscored by an improvised acoustic guitar, I, Eternal is thought-provoking, hopeful, dark, and timeless, and it carries undertones of our own society and traditions.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I, Eternal is an original concept conceived by Megan Feltmann and written and developed by Feltmann and Brian Isles.  After creating a rough draft of the script, roles were assigned to cast members, and they were encouraged to write or edit lines so that it would better fit their voices.  This collaboration took place at Central High School in Norwood Young America, MN, and the show is comprised of current students and alumni of the high school.

For the past 19 years, our community has had a summer theatre program; however, after last year's season, the community theatre was dissolved, leaving us without a creative outlet over the summer.  We entered into the Fringe Festival with hopes of continuing the rich tradition of theatre in our small community, but we also embraced the challenge of taking our show on the road and performing for brand new audiences.

Fine, Poke the Wasp Productions is led by Brian and Missy Isles.
